On Tuesday, Associate Professor of Art at Washington University in St. Louis and Director of Island Press Lisa Bulawsky visited the WVU printshop. Lisa gave a tremendous talk to my students. It was so good, I forgot to take a picture during it! Lisa also gave a few crits to my graduate students. Thanks Lisa for taking time out of your busy schedule to come to WVU, we really enjoyed it!
On Saturday April 18th, I hosted a mini-comics workshop for area high school students. This workshop mimics the workshop I have taught at the University of Kansas and Murray State University. We had students from Mon County and from Pittsburgh attend the event. It was a lot of fun, and some good comics were made!

I recently completed another in my series of books. This book is focuses on something from the original Iron Man comic that I haven’t really looked at much, the ads. All “comic” imagery is removed, and only the ads remain. The book is 6″x4″, the pages are digitally printed on newsprint to give the book a realistic comic feel.
Saturday April 11 marked the closing reception for the annual “CONFLUENCE” WVU MFA exhibition at Artists Image Resource in Pittsburgh. The 2014 undergraduate interns also had a group show at AIR. Thank you so much to everyone at AIR for being so supportive of the special relationship we have forged with them. It was a really successful night…
On Friday April 10, I was asked to meet with graduating BFA students from Shepherd University. The Art Department annually hosts “interviews” between visiting artists and graduating students. This was a really fun time, I met a lot of talented students and met some new artists from the DC area. Thank you Shepherd University for asking me to be a part of this day!
